Course Summary

Course Overview

Whether it's biomechanics and biomaterials, bioimaging and bioseng, or a combination of both, this 12-month course aims to provide science and engineering graduates from diverse backgrounds with a solid grounding in modern bioengineering technologies.

This multidisciplinary masters covers practical and theoretical aspects of bioengineering, including: Medical imaging; Medical device design and regulation; Cell-biomaterial surface interactions; Materials characterization; Functionalisation of surface; Biomechanics.

The course will prepare students for a wide variety of careers within industry, hospitals, clinical or research environments, independent learning, or for further education within postgraduate research.


Our graduates go on to a wide range of careers. Some go on to do PhDs, while others enter roles that have a direct correlation to their degree, including in the medical device industry, biomedical imaging industry and bioengineering regulatory organisations. Others use their transferable skills in a range of sectors.


This module considers aspects of human structure and function, and relevant terminology, pertaining to organ systems of interest to bioengineers including: Basic anatomical and medical terminology; Cardiovascular system; Gastrointestinal system; Reproductive and excretory system; Nervous system; The skeletal system will be considered in greater depth with examples of normal and pathological function and engineering-based interventions.
